The Department of Public Works, along with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), will be conducting a public meeting regarding two upcoming bridge projects in Rankin Borough. Both the replacement of the Kenmawr Avenue Bridge over Fleet Street, and the future rehabilitation or replacement of the Talbot Avenue Bridge over West Braddock Avenue and Toner Way Street, will be discussed at the Tuesday, June 19, 2018 meeting being held at 6:30 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to allow the public to learn preliminary details about the project, including approaches, detour routes, and construction duration, as well as to ask questions. Representatives from Allegheny County and PennDOT as well as a design consultant will be on hand to answer questions and address concerns.

Public input is also requested on historic and archaeological resources present in the project area and the effect of the project on these resources. The Pittsburgh and Lake Erie (P&LE) Railroad is located within the project area and is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
